    Failed DCdiag Test

    Hello guys, I am having a SBS 2003 running with Service Pack 2. From last couple of weeks am facing some network issues in this server. When tried running DCdiag test, there were two tests which got failed which are ISMServ Service and the SystemLog test.

    This is just the start of troubleshooting and it says IsmServ Service is stopped. Any idea what could have gone wrong and how can I fix it? Thank you very much.

    You can simply ignore the first error that is “IsmServ Service is stopped” because ISMServ wont run normally in SBS. As far as SystemLog is concerned it indicates events recently logged. To get the real cause of the problem you should check the specific eventlog entries.

    thank for the reply!

    Is there a way to make it run? What exactly is the ISMserv service?
